confused

Me and DH are freaking out a bit. At about 10pm we heard the letterbox go while we were watching TV but didn't immediately check it. We've just got up to head to bed and it's a tiny little ziplock bag (like 50p sized tiny) with white lumpy powder in it hmm

We're going to have to call 111 in the morning arent we? Really freaked and going to struggle to sleep now!

What the actual fuck confused

111 is NHS - 101 now would be my suggestion smile

Sounds like coke put through the wrong address. Do u have any dodgy neighbours?

BullshitVivienne Sat 23-Jan-21 22:40:27

Call 101 instead, NHS Direct probably can't help.

Drug dealer posted through the wrong letter box?

@tired2021 that's what I meant blush grin

@ledkr I didn't think so, they seem normal but we only moved in in the summer!

Haha you've got someone else's drugs!

UmmWTF Sat 23-Jan-21 22:42:15

DH is concerned that if they realise its the wrong address they'll come and ask for it back...

They might come and ask for it back when they realise shock

WorraLiberty Sat 23-Jan-21 22:43:08

I'd worry whoever it was meant for might knock on your door later

Wonder if it's best to let 101 know now?

UmmWTF Sat 23-Jan-21 22:43:13

Yeah thats worrying sad

No way are they going to come and ask for it back.

I'd just bin it and forget about it.

I don't think the police will be interested at all tbh.

Nice to know drug dealers offer contact-free delivery, taking the pandemic seriously I see! enjoy your night OPwink

Actually forget 101 in that case, I'd just hand it over to whoever knocks.

Wrong I know but I wouldn't want trouble at my door.

BeHappyAndSmile Sat 23-Jan-21 22:44:10

Give it a sniff, you'll soon know what it is wink

I wouldn't be so sure

A lot of people are absolutely brazen around here.

is it a neighbour returning some sugar?

UmmWTF Sat 23-Jan-21 22:46:33

Yes very good guys grin you're at least making me laugh through it!

DH is a goody two shoes and I'm really struggling with stress at the moment for other reasons so I have no idea whether not making a fuss/giving it to someone if they knock for it or 101 is the better idea!

They might ask for it back if they know it’s at your address. They paid for it and it’s not like the dealer will give them a replacement, it would be easier for them to ask you for it

sofiaaaaaa Sat 23-Jan-21 22:47:11

Can’t you leave it outside on your doorstep?

WalkersAreNotTheOnlyCrisps Sat 23-Jan-21 22:47:13

Yeah I’d be handing it over too if they knocked on for it 😑
